2016-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What grade would you give Beau Burrows' season and what do you see him needing to improve on to continue his success at the next level?
(Max M from 419)
The two times I saw Burrows I was impressed, he had a mid 90s fastball, touching 97 on one gun. He could, and would, trade velocity into the lower 90s to gain some more movement on his fastball and had a feel for pitching, showing presence on the mound too. His curveball is solid, flashing above average, but can be inconsistent. He showed he was comfortable with his change up as well which is always a plus. He doesn't have a glaring issue to fix, and getting more IP next year will help with the occasional inconsistency. (Midwest League Wrap Up)
2016-04-19 12:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rather be picking top 5 in the 2016 draft or the 2017 draft?
(Scott from NJ)
This is a great question. Here's the hard part: we don't really know what 2017 will truly be like. It's too far away. It's important to mention that the grass is always greener; 'next year' generally always has a better rap than 'this year' does. That's how it seems, anyway.

That said, I think what looked to be a very promising top of the draft to start the season has had some wrenches thrown into it. Alec Hansen had disastrous outings and was moved to the bullpen. AJ Puk had some up-and-down performances, and now is dealing with some tweaks in his back, I believe. Jason Groome--fair or not--is serving a suspension for not abiding by New Jersey transfer rules (and it's always dicey going with a prep arm first).

The consensus was that the 2015 Draft was 'a down year', and indeed, it may have been. However, if it was 'down' in any which way, I think it was more a lack of overall depth and/or elite pitching at the top of the draft, especially from the college ranks. However, a very clear-cut 1/2/3 did emerge in Swanson, Bregman, and Rodgers. Having three guys who have chances to remain shortstops with quality bats is an enthusing top of the draft; Bregman's hot start and the ceilings of Dansby and Rodgers all only further that assertion.

To wrap this question up: last year may not have been as 'deep' as I still believe this year to be, but I think it was a comfier year to have a very high pick. This year there is probably going to be more split camps on a handful of the top guys, and that's partially a byproduct of none of the biggest names entering the spring seemingly taking a step forward. This could bite me in the butt, but I'll throw caution to the wind and say I might like to draft, say, fourth overall next year than this one.

That said, I would rather draft 22nd this year than last (no slight at Beau Burrows here) given an increase in depth stemming from more viable pitching options. And would rather pick 22nd this year than even next year, because if we don't have enough information to pin down the TOP picks next year, how could be do so with picks in the later 1st round?

Great question. I encourage you to ask other scouting writers and perhaps team personnel, too. I think there would be a wide variance of opinions and subsequent rationales for them. (Adam McInturff)
